Williams Pantycelyn

William Williams was surely one of the finest hymn writers to grace the church.

The following selections from Sweet Singers of Wales by Howell Elvet Lewis should hopefully whet your appetite for more from Pantycelyn's gifted pen:
And don't miss Dr. D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones' 1968 address, "William Williams and Welsh Calvinistic Methodism."

BTW, The Calvinistic Methodist Fathers of Wales (2 vols.) was recently translated into English and published by Banner of Truth. According to Iain Murray, for "sheer stimulus and enjoyment there were no volumes which [Martyn Lloyd-Jones] prized more than Tadau Methodistiaid...the lives of the fathers of Welsh Calvinistic Methodism. They were constantly in his hands."

Steve's five part series "Music: sacred & profane" is well worth reading, too: part 1; part 2; part 3; part 4; and part 5.
